    Colts Fans May Have A Beef with Steak n Shake Ad
    By John Russell, The Indianapolis Star
    November 16, 2006

    Thousands of Indianapolis residents doubtlessly will do a double-take this week when they open the mail to find out their hometown Steak n Shake restaurant is "a proud sponsor of the Dallas Cowboys."

    That's quite a public-relations pickle for the Indianapolis-based restaurant chain, especially as the Colts and Cowboys gear up to play this Sunday in Dallas.

    The company, known for its steakburgers and milkshakes, inadvertently sent a mailer promoting its "Cowboys side-by-side milkshake" to more than 600,000Indianapolis residents. It was intended for the Dallas market. Some were mailed in Chicago and St. Louis.

    Steak n Shake, which sponsors the Colts and the Cowboys, apologized Wednesday. "We feel just terrible," said Steven Schiller, chief marketing officer. "We sponsor only two teams. They just happened to be playing each other this weekend. We obviously messed up, and we hope Colts fans will be understanding."

    I like most of the food at Steak and Shake, but the closest one to me has terrible service. I usually just go to the Fudruckers down the street instead.

    I haven't watched a game this year. The Colts were favored. I expected them to win.

    Having said that, the Cowboys have always had talent, minus a year or two here and there. Very few years have they been just total write-offs. One reason why people either love them or hate them. They can play with anyone.

    No matter who the owner, coach and/or players are, the Cowboys have always maintained the propensity to choke. Superbowl IV comes to mind. Just consider this payback.:poke:
